6:35 am
no shock to him. he says that it's pretty easy to get in here even though the complex is gated. he said it's easy to get the gate code and there are some people who come in through the exit. he sees a lot of people coming in and out that probably shouldn't be in the complex. he also said that he does see what he identified as illegal activity going on in the complex. he says he has seen hand-to-hand drug deals himself. he has witnessed those here and it's something that he says could be a factor here. so that is why he's not surprised by this incident last night. we will of course be working today to try to find out more information about what exactly happened. and if you know anything about what went on here last night, you are asked to call crime line at 1-800-423-tips. jason: a brother and sister are locked up accused of stealing cookie cash from a local girl scout.
